This is a Matses house, in the Rainforest.
Hello! We are Sophie and Camilla and we have arrived in Iquitos from Bristol, UK. It has been a very busy few days meeting the project’s artist, Guillermo Pemen, organising a space to teach and trekking for two hours into the forest to meet old Matses friends. Tomorrow we begin our first workshop in a space at the University UNAP.
In the photograph: a 4-year-old Matses child carries heavy plantains to the village and smiles as he contributes to the household economy, like all Matses children do
we are working with Matses children aged 3 to 15 to co-produce an animated video using their own drawings, stories and audio – check this for a coming-soon trailer
